Rangers Beat Down Bruins 5-2

Tuukka Rask? Check. Dany Sabourin? Check. Tim Thomas? Um…I’ll get back to ya on that one.

Why? Well, because Thomas allowed five goals on just 19 shots in preseason action against the Rangers Saturday night in a 5-2 loss. He allowed three first period goals, including a short-handed goal to Rangers prospect Artem Anisimov with five minutes to go in the frame.

One of the first period goals came off the stick of the jerk Sean Avery, who scored an unassisted goal almost eight minutes into the game to help the Rangers to a 2-0 lead.

Marc Savard brought the Bruins within one goal nine minutes into the game, but the shorthanded goal took the winds out of the Bruins’ sails, and the deficit became too large to overcome. Zach Hamill added his first goal of the preseason early in the second period, but the Rangers made it a 4-2 game with Enver Lisin’s goal six minutes later.

Pierre Parenteau capped off the scoring with three minutes left in the game.

To make the seemingly boring preseason game more exciting, Milan Lucic was ejected for spearing Michael Del Zotto (he deserves it with a stupid name like that) at 16:06 of the second period.
